On Tuesday morning, Rebecca made about 8 million phone calls to various Babies R Us stores. She started out calling New Jersey stores and working outwards. In between calls, she’d vent to me about no one having it. And I certainly didn’t help when I kept recommending different places to call — “call Maryland!” and “call South Carolina!” and “call China!”
Yeah, I’m the dramatic one in this relationship.
After a ton of calls, Rebecca finally got a hit; we finally found the glider! She’ll tell you a bit more about the deets at a later time, but there was a floor model available at a store in my favorite part of New York City: Staten Island. Better known as the place where I was born.
And here she is in all of her glory. I wish I could have taken a wider shot of the room with the glider, but Rebecca had some stuff on the crib that screamed I AM THE GENDER OF THE BABY, so I had to be selective in my shots.
Despite being the floor model, it was in top shape. There was a smudge on the ottoman, but as soon as we got home Rebecca was able to quickly clean it up. God bless micro-suede.
